Dangerous and defective - awaiting a product recall!,
This review is from: Bodum 5679 C-Mill Electric Coffee Grinder, Black (Kitchen & Home)
The clear plastic lid incorporates a red button that activates the on/off switch, and this is an important safety feature that is intended to prevent the mill operating with the lid removed, which could cause serious injury.
After 3 months of occasional use the on/off switch failed in the 'ON Position' meaning that the mill operates continuously when connected to a power supply, and can not be controlled using the red button, and IT CONTINUES TO OPERATE WITH LID REMOVED.
This defect in design and manufacture was reported to Trading Standards and Bodim in August 2012. An investigation is currently in progress and I expect a Bodim to launch a product recall in the near future.
If you have experienced similar problems, please report them to your local trading standards department and Bodim as soon as possible.
